Pumpkin STEAM Fest - Friday, Oct. 18, 2019, 6-8:30pm



An evening of fun and education centered around Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).  This event combines a popular event from years past, Pumpkin Walk, and an expansion of last year's popular Astronomy Night. There will be decorated pumpkins, STEAM demonstrations and activities, arts and crafts, night sky viewing with telescopes on the field, and a variety of food options. This event will be fun for the whole family.
